Animal and Bird Images from Google+

It’s not only wolves that make great greenygrey images of course; lots of animals do. Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman with the middle section of the XaW Files, with lots of amazing animals in glorious greenygrey images. These are the third of five files.

Admittedly, a lot of the images mix nature with the animals to create the greenygreyness. I’m not Stephen Wolfing (Hawking to humans), and this isn’t rocket science folks: it’s just the fair ship Greenygrey sailing a sea of coffee!

Animal and Bird Images

Whatever could be left after humans, wolves and animals…
well, you’ll just have to wait and see…
but it won’t be for long, as I’ll be back in one hour and 23…

Humans, Art and Design Images from Google+

Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, head honcho at Greenygrey communications in the absence of the legendary Andy Wolfhol. I learnt a lot from ol’ Wolfhol, but my biggest inspiration was Baron Wolman.

Messages from Wolfhol

You might have seen the three poetic image-messages left on the Greenygrey blog last weekend bearing the unique and seemingly impossible to forge aW Andy Wolfhol signature.

There were also a load of jumbled greenygrey images sent into the Greenygrey world from the Googlesphere, where Wolfhol must be; perhaps looking for a greenygrey way out. I’ve arranged them into some kind of order, with the first batch below containing those involving human design.

There’s a crossover between the categories, with for example, the first one being mostly dog, but the greenygreyness is from the human structure and shrubbery behind.

The citations below are for the people who posted them on Google+, and are not necessarily the owners of the images. If anybody would like any changes, please let me know.

Wolf News from Sweden and British Television

Wolves starred in the first episode of my human parallel Chris Packham‘s Inside the Animal Mind. This made for a great greenygrey wolf and human cover photo to advertise the nature documentary.

Wolf and Dog Differences

The documentary showed that although wolves and dogs are essentially the same, they have evolved very different sensory styles because wolves remained wild while dogs were domesticated by humanity.

Wolves rely very heavily on smelling, which is very acute, while dogs use more of their other senses, such as sight for responding to human directions.

Sweden Cancels Wolf Hunt

Hi, it’s Chris Packwolf, with a round-up of the greenygrey-related animal news in the human  world. 

First of all, I’d like to thank the Swedish and Norwegian governments and people for preserving their wild wolf packs.

The Swedish government stopped a wolf cull this month.

Animal Worlds

In another new nature documentary, Hidden Kingdoms reminded me of Marc Latham’s ant theory, with small animals shown living just as eventful lives as bigger mammals in the world humans and wolves see and smell. 

The grasshopper mouse featured in the first episode was like a little wolf, even howling to communicate and mark its territory.

The mouse also shares the wolf’s tenacity, fighting species much bigger than it, helped by evolving immunity from scorpion and snake venom.

Nepal Mastiff Dog Mountain Photos

There was also some great greenygrey scenery on Marc Latham’s travel25years blog, with a mastiff dog and other animals enjoying a sleepy existence high up in the Himalayas.

Nepal 038

There’s also a lot of hard work going on around there though, and it’s a tough place to live, as shown in other photos on the t25y site.

you may get the idea
but you might also fail.

Werewolf Grey searches for Collie Dog Twins

Hi, it’s Grey. My blog about the aftermath of Bri’s Bane has appeared on the Oz blog, and we’ve imported it here in super quick time. It was a traumatic time, but there was BUNdles of fun at the end. It is copied below.

We are also excited to tell you that March 20th, the spring/autumn equinox, has been chosen as a release date for the whole edited and improved Werewolf of Oz book on Amazon Kindle. Here’s episode 136 of 142:

Border Collie

I rose into a mix of joy and relief; sadness and loss. Many had given their lives on Greenslopes. I was relieved that Angry, Cathy and Elle quickly joined me, and to see they were all in good health. Aussie and Digger soon turned up as well, and were looking swell; Aus said it had only received a flesh wound. Then Vombat the Wombat pushed its way through the crowd, with a relieved look on its face. I could see Brian and Emily with the chinchilla survivors, but where were the Collie twins?

Searching for the Collie Twins

I asked the others if they’d seen the Collies. Digger said they’d been fighting heroically the last time it’d seen them, which was near the end of the battle. None of them had seen the Collies at the end of the battle. I started walking down the hill, looking through the bodies, dreading finding the Collies in a bad state.

A cascade of cheers rolled down from the top of the hill. I looked behind me and was filled with relief: the Collie twins were alive and well, and being carried along by a crowd of chinchillas. I rushed up the hill to them, and saw they were all eating buns.

I made my way through the munching mass, and asked the twins where they’d been. Ollie was too busy bun-munching above the bunch to hear; but Colin said that when the fighting finished they noticed a rich bun seam had been exposed by all the disruption, so they’d straightaway started bun-mining to feed the hungry survivors. Colin handed me a freshly mined rough-cut bun.

I laughed and thanked him, before biting into a bun that tasted just as delicious as those I’d eaten in Bunbury.

As I savoured the taste, and memories of Ozyssey evoked, I thought how Bunbury and Bri’s bane were on different sides of Oz, but would be quite close together in a dictionary. I thought there must be a lesson there somewhere, but was too busy bun-munching to brainwave.

Pedigree Dogs and Wild Wolves: the Truth

English: The Gibbon wolf pack pauses in the sn...
Image via Wikipedia

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill. Last night there was a good but sad documentary about how pedigree dogs have been bred into deformity by decades of human engineering. Pedigree Dogs Exposed: Three Years On showed how dogs’ skulls and bones have been changed into totally different shapes in under a century; like an evolution of convenience for humanity’s vision, rather than the animal’s health. The dogs have trouble living a normal life, and even breathing in some cases. It’s available on BBC iplayer in the UK; don’t know about other availability: http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b01cqp75/

Also, tonight at 10 on BBC4 there’s a Natural World documentary on the Wolf Pack (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0078ps7). I think I’ve seen it before, and it’s a warts n’ all documentary, so not all good for wolves, but is a balanced look at the wolf and how it really lives (unlike the wolfophobia of The Grey film!).
